Toy Soldier Saturday: MARX 54mm Cavalry (Part 1)


These stalwart Marx troopers came on the scene around 1957, and defended dozens of variations of Fort Apache from wild Marx Indians. They also helped out General Custer at the Marx Little Big Horn, for all the good it did him. We'll meet more of their brothers-in-arms in Part 2.

Was 1957 a typo?

Should that have read 1857? First Fort Apaches were 1955, and I reckon those had the 60mm guys. First sets with 20 cavalry poses were in '57, so it seems likely that's when these troopers made their debut.

Maybe, but I think of them as the troopers who accompanied Custer. I was thinking 1967.

I asked the Marx Yahoo Group and the one answer I got so far was that they were designed in 1967 and released in 1968.
